Conveyor Belt Tennessee Manufacturer

The Situation

An automotive parts manufacturer in Tennessee is required to run their equipment 24 hours to make parts delivery deadlines.


The Problem

When equipment breaks down, it halts production for the entire manufacturing process. This threatens delivery times, which can result in fines or penalties depending on the customer.


The Solution

The manufacturer installed One Machine on their conveyor systems for condition monitoring. Although the conveyors with large tapered roller bearings are able to operate with 4 thousand’s of an inch clearance, the One Machine Condition Monitoring Device is able to pick up changes in operation with changes as low as 1 thousands of inch. This allowed the automotive client to track trend lines for wear and, determine when adjustments should be made before a failure occurs.
